A hidden gem!


The Kingdom of Swaziland is slightly off the beaten track and a jewel waiting to be discovered. Within this tiny landlocked Kingdom you will find every geographical feature of Africa's terrain with the exception of desert and sea. Magnificent mountain scenery with rivers, waterfalls and gorges; unique rock formations which are amongst the world's most ancient;lush and fertile valleys and typical African bush. The people are warm, friendly, kind and peaceful. They embrace and uphold their unique and ancient traditions and are united under the last monarch in Africa. There are many nature reserves that protect a great variety of animals which are home to virtually all the wild animals of Africa. During our time in Swaziland we will get a taste of the traditions of the Swazi people when we visit the Cultural Village, have a walk through a local township area, visit a nature reserve, explore an ancient iron ore mine and spend time at some wonderful art and craft centres. A wealth of experiences awaits you!
